A cross between Indiana Jones and The DaVinci Code for kids, you won't be able to put down this classic adventure set in 1920s New York City with an Arabian twist! On a stormy May day in 1929, William and Maxine arrive on the doorstep of Battersea Manor to spend the summer with a grandfather they barely remember. Whatever the cousins expected, Colonel Battersea isn't it. Soon after they settle in, Grandpa receives a cryptic telegram and promptly whisks the cousins off to New York City so that he can meet an unknown courier and collect a very important package. Before he can do so, however, Grandpa vanishes without a trace. When the cousins stumble upon Nura, a tenacious girl from Turkey, she promises to help them track down the parcel and rescue Colonel Battersea. But with cold-blooded gangsters and a secret society of assassins all clamoring for the same mysterious object, the children soon find themselves in a desperate struggle...

A historical mystery for kids?! Sign me up! I enjoyed this book and the dynamic between the kids. The adventure and mystery were a teensy bit intense, but nothing an older middle grade kid couldn't handle.
